    • Dr Simon Elliott

    The institute carries out contract research and development in collaboration with industry and third-level institutions, and has active collaborations around Europe through the Framework programmes. The institute hosts the National Nanofabrication Facility and is Ireland’s only EU-designated research infrastructure.  Much of Tyndall’s activity centres around materials development for information and communications technologies and a current strength is in high-k materials ? deposition, modelling, characterisation and electrical performance.  Computational activity at Tyndall spans materials, process and packaging simulation for next-generation electronics, micro-systems and nanotechnologies.
